Review: The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar

"Intense, gritty, and full of heart."

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. They lie. For 21 days she held on. But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death. Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.

A haunting tale of passion, loss, and redemption, The Paper Swan is a darkly intense yet heartwarming love story, textured with grit, intrigue, and suspense. A full-length, standalone novel, intended for mature audiences due to violence, sex and language. Subject matter may be disturbing for some readers. Please note: this is not a love triangle.

Review by Jennifer

4 Powerful Stars



WOW! This was a powerful story that definitely packed a punch with it! It had everything in it…love, lies, sex, kidnapping, murder and suspense. For a good part of this book I was on the edge of my seat wondering what in the world was going to happen next and was I going to be able to handle it.

The Paper Swan is an emotional story about what happens when a person is so blinded by revenge that it’s all him/her can see.  It also lets the reader experience what can happen when one chooses to let go of all the hatred that they have kept inside for so long. 

“You don’t always get the treasure by holding on. Sometimes the magic happens when you let go.”
These two characters endured so much throughout this book. It was heartbreaking at times and I would think to myself how much more can they take but I had to see it through to the end. I had to know the full story and I am so glad I did. When I started the book, I felt one way about them and by the end I felt something completely different. I so desperately wanted them to find their hea.

 “If I die tonight, I want to die remembering what it was like to hold the whole world in my hands.”

This book will definitely take you on a ride through all of your emotions. You won’t know which way is up for a while, but just hang on you will make it through alright. I have to add to this review how beautifully written I thought this story was. The Author did an outstanding job writing it in my opinion.
